Next-generation RPM software
This mobile productivity solution sets up quickly to collect relevant data from production systems without any changes to the existing assets or disrupting the operations.
The next generation of LEANTrak is now released. LEANTrak is
a mobile productivity solution that is set up quickly to collect relevant data
from production systems without any changes to the existing assets or
disrupting the operations. It readily provides users with crucial and
actionable intelligence necessary for improving manufacturing productivity and
business profitability. The software allows users to quickly and easily set up
in minutes - regardless of infrastructure, resources, products/equipment
vintage - and almost immediately gain invaluable knowledge of how to improve
their operations without production disruption.
LEANTrak leverages the functionality of the TrakSYS
Real-time Performance Management (RPM) software into a portable package that is
easily deployed without typical installation challenges such as wiring,
programming, infrastructure changes or production disruption. This software
release simplifies the set-up process by creating pre-configured
point-and-click prompts to walk any users through the set-up process.
The software can easily be moved from machine-to-machine,
line-to-line or site-to-site. It accurately records production line
productivity events by monitoring and measuring product flow. Manufacturers are
able to determine the value of RPM tools by collecting, storing and analyzing
performance data before committing to a broader software implementation and

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
